Gratituesday: January 12th

Today I am thankful for our many Priest friends. It is such a blessing to have fun, "normal" relationships with priests. Our kids think that being a priest is cool, and don't even realize that not too many people have priests come hang out at their house every week!
And I also think it's good for priests to get out of the Rectory and into family's homes to relax, eat some home cooked meals and get a sense of what we go through. It's a win-win. So I encourage you all to invite over to dinner your pastor/preacher/priest and really get to know them if you don't already :)

Below is a short video at the Vatican, featuring Maggie's godfather, Fr. Dave (about 24 seconds in). He is in Rome getting his PhD so that he can become a professor at the seminary in Boston. Fr. Dave - you made it to YouTube....you're famous now!!

What are you thankful for today?


  1. ha! funny we actually just had our pastor over after Sunday morning service... but you are totally right, it's so nice to have that relationship!

  2. This is awesome, I agree: WIN/WIN!!

  3. Our pastor is my Dad, so we are very close...but my dad is very close to his whole congregation. I think that is so important.

  4. Very nice! :-) You have such a nice family
